$400 CAD / $285 USD / £230 per student

In this time of uncertainty we need to teach our youth how to be problem solvers.  If you are looking for a way to teach your children problem-solving skills, empathy, networking, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, global awareness, critical thinking, a growth mindset and much more than this course is just what you have been looking for.  At Unlearn Academy we are looking to change the way that we learn traditional subjects by reaching out into our community, finding issues that we care about, coming up with solutions and implementing those solutions. While school is out, this eight-week course will give your child the ability to work on their self-confidence, their social skills, and becoming aware of the world around them, all while giving back to their community and becoming social change makers. This course is not limited to youth in Ontario, we are hoping to connect with youth from all over the world.  Come and unlearn with us.

Social Change Makers 2.0

Age groupings 11-14 and 15-17
$400 CAD / $285 USD / £230 per student

While not mandatory, it is recommended that those who sign up for SCM 2.0 have completed SCM 1.0.  SCM 1.0 will give youth the foundation and skills necessary for the SCM 2.0 program.  This program will have four main focuses including creating and answering weekly questions that they are curious about, a community connected passion project, an individual endeavour, and finally a collective endeavour.  

In SCM 2.0 there is an emphasis on self-direction.  Youth will be encouraged to work with their facilitator to choose and create projects.  With the help of the facilitator, they will create their own instructions and deadlines and learn to manage them accordingly.  Youth and facilitators will meet one on one at least once a week and in small groups twice a week.
